In short: Love this race but where oh where were the water staions this year? In full: Love doing this race as a great way to break in the new year. On this occasion though I would have to ask where oh where were all the water stations? Have the cut backs that we've all been suffering taken their toll on the Watford Harriers too. Last year we had excessive use of Galtorade being handed out and this year there was nowt. I turned up thinking I wouldn't need to bother with gels etc, oh how wrong I was. By half way round I was suffering as all I had seen up to this point was one lousy basic water stop and nothing more than that, not even squash. C'mon Watford Harriers you can do better than this!!

In short: Good run - bit annoyed about no race pack and few water stations In full: The Watford Half is a really nice run and all in all the marshals and staff are really welcoming. I was a bit annoyed that the Race HQ details were not changed on the website and I did not get my race pack in the post so pre-race was a bit stressful.
PLEASE have more water stations at the start and this race needs a medal - really important for me!!
In short: Can we have marquees every year? In full: Well organised race thank you. Much preferred marquees and they kept us warm before start. No queuing for loos, info and water. Supportive marshals. Thanks Date of review: February 6, 2011
In short: A good challenge, well organised and enjoyable In full: The hills were a good challenge, and the 1.30 pace runner did a good job.
Not sure what happened at the mens start where one of the runners at the front was crouched down when the race started. The runners directly in front and behind me went head first straight over him.
Overall the course is good with good support from the marshals. My only minor gripe is that between 11 and 12 miles it's a very narrow path with nowhere else to run. The people walking along here pushing prams weren't ideal. Date of review: February 6, 2011
In short: Hilly but enjoyable. Lots of support. In full: A great race, with lots of support. The hills are sharp but at least fairly short! Despite the hills- smashed my PB! Who could ask for more! Date of review: February 6, 2011
